Soooo let's say any OTHER company then Squaresoft (Square-Enix it is nowa days), would make a FF game. Which company would you choose and why??
I think I'd let TSR make it, they are repsosible for a great deal of the Forgotten Realms series (Baldurs Gate, PlaneScape: Torment, IceWind Dale). The reason why would be the incredible character depth and quests/sub quests. They also have a great knack for good stories, so the main story line would be great.
Or I would choose SEGA probably, they made Skies of Arcadia Legends, aswell as another number of good RPGs. It would have a great turnbased fighting system and good stry, nice character depth and great fighting/magic system.
